The best Italian sparkling wine and one of the greatest in the world is Trentodoc according to the Encyclopedia of Wines written by a world champion sommelier
Trentodoc sparkling wines? With the Ferrari brand they can now be considered the best in Italy and among the greatest in the world. And yet another confirmation comes from a wine guide signed by an expert, Luca Gardini, the current world champion sommelier. He wrote, along with great tasters like Pierluigi Gorgoni, Andrea Grignaffini and Marco Pozzali the '"Encyclopedia of Wine" (1016 pages, Dalai publisher, € 35.00), a comprehensive volume in which the sommelier using 15 years of research explains the 3000 best wines in the world.
A massive undertaking, without doubt, that among many labels also glorifies the Giulio Ferrari Riserva del Fondatore. According to Gardini this wine, vintage 1993, is once again not only the first of Italian sparkling wines, but it is among the one hundred greatest wines in the world. It is the only Italian label of dry sparkling wines in this select category.
For the record, Luca Gardini awarded the Port Vintage Nacional 2003 of Quinta Do Noval as the best wine in the world.
